Katie is a current Pre-Med sophomore in the Residential College, from Birmingham, Alabama. She has always loved traveling and studied abroad in Spain last summer! She loves writing, watching classic movies, and photography. However, most of all, she loves to SING! Glee is the highlight of her week, and she is excited to see where it takes her!
The Wellness Chair position is a new one inspired by Katie’s experiences as a student here at a competitive university, as well as the experiences of her friends. She noticed high levels of stress, neglect of self care, and distraction and found it is necessary to reserve little moments of tranquility throughout the day. When making music, it is important to remain centered and focused, however, when students bring outside stressors into the rehearsal room, this can result in chatter and distractions. The Wellness Chair’s role is to ensure that we are making music in a supportive, calm, and focused environment through organizing events and implementing mindfulness strategies.
